Default Transmissions

How about info on NV3550 swap from -01 to -04 wrangler? The early bronco guys are using this trans behind small block Fords with an adapter from Advance or others. Ratios seem right and it is rated for small v8 torque. Advance has an adapter that mates to the 1350 t-case.
Input spline count is the same as Chevy, and the output spline matches the 1350. I am doing the homework on this because I am going to swap a 5.0 for the 2.9 in my '89 ranger 5 speed 4wd ext cab, I want to keep it stick shift and the other choices (Mazda or ZF 5 speeds) don't look good. I will document my research on this and will do a write up with pictures when the swap happens.
My other path was a switch to automatic; how about some info on getting a 4r70w to shift with '89 electronics (+ baumann add-on)?
